John Manderino's "But You Scared Me the Most" was a one sitting read. Very quick, very readable. Some the the stories work quie well. Loved Kukla because it brought back my childhood. A Matter of Character also worked quite well. Used to caddy for my great uncle. Brought back those times, particularly how much I suck at golf.
And that's the other thing about short stories, what works or doesn't work is a very personal choice. So no "I hated this story" review.
Mr Manderino knows how to write. I got the feeling that these were vignettes that were mini dramas. Sometimes quirky, sometimes odd, but definitely worth the time. Each story is told with a different voice. Which is amazing when you think about it. The author convinces you he is a child of 11, Bigfoot, an altar boy that the priest does not like. There is the awkward pain of being a child and the triumph of becoming your own man. There is even the "I don't give a hoot" of a wolfman caring on a conversation with his wife.
An enjoyable read that I should probably rate higher. If only I had been read over the course of a week.
My thanks to Edelweiss Above the Treeline, the author, and his publisher for my free copy in exchange for this unbiased review.
